Abdelhamid, Gomaa Said Mohamed; Gómez-Benito, Juana; Abdeltawwab, Ahmed Taha Mohamed; Abu Bakr, Mostafa Hafida Soliman; Kazem, Amina Mohamed – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale--Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) is one of the most well-known tests in the field of adult intelligence assessment. This study explores the validity of the Egyptian adaptation for the subscales of the WAIS-IV. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) indicated that the first-order, second-order, and bifactor models of both…

Oak, Erika; Viezel, Kathleen D.; Dumont, Ron; Willis, John – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Individuals trained in the use of cognitive tests should be able to complete an assessment without making administrative, scoring, or recording errors. However, an examination of 295 Wechsler protocols completed by graduate students and practicing school psychologists revealed that errors are the norm, not the exception. The most common errors…

Woods, Isaac L., Jr.; Floyd, Randy G.; Singh, Leah J.; Layton, Haley K.; Norfolk, Philip A.; Farmer, Ryan L. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Labels for scores stemming from intelligence tests have been employed since their inception in the United States. The purpose of this study was to systematically identify and document score labels for IQs used during the past 102 years. Using pairs of reviewers, score labels from 40 tests were reviewed, and 61 unique labels were identified.…

Lovett, Benjamin J.; Lewandowski, Lawrence J.; Potts, Heather E. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
Students often feel time pressure when taking tests, and students with disabilities are sometimes given extended time testing accommodations, but little research has been done on the factors that affect students' test-taking speed. In the present study, 253 students at two colleges completed measures of processing speed, reading fluency, and…

Jewsbury, Paul A.; Bowden, Stephen C.; Duff, Kevin – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
The Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) model is a comprehensive model of the major dimensions of individual differences that underlie performance on cognitive tests. Studies evaluating the generality of the CHC model across test batteries, age, gender, and culture were reviewed and found to be overwhelmingly supportive. However, less research is available…

Valler, Emilee C.; Burko, Jordan A.; Pfeiffer, Steven I.; Branagan, Alexandra M. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
The conceptualization of giftedness continues to be a widely debated topic within the field. Recently, there has been a shift from a psychometric view of giftedness to inclusion of conative and contextual factors. How one defines and conceptualizes "gifted" drives assessment and identification practices. Conceptualization also guides the…

Weiss, Lawrence G.; Gregoire, Jacques; Zhu, Jianjun – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
Many Flynn effect (FE) studies compare scores across different editions of Wechsler's IQ tests. When construct changes are introduced by the test developers in the new edition, however, the presumed generational effects are difficult to untangle from changes due to test content. To remove this confound, we use the same edition of Wechsler…

Kaufman, A. S.; Salthouse, T. A.; Scheiber, C.; Chen, H. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
Patterns of maintenance of ability across the life span have been documented on tests of knowledge ("Gc"), as have patterns of steady decline on measures of reasoning ("Gf/Gv"), working memory ("Gsm"), and speed ("Gs"). Whether these patterns occur at the same rate for adults from different educational…

Oakland, Thomas; Douglas, Sara; Kane, Harrison – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
This article provides a 24-year update on the 10 standardized tests used most frequently with children and youth by school psychologists. Data were acquired from 64 countries through an international survey, with one respondent from each country. The informants were solicited due to their expertise in the area of assessment. The data from the…

Black, Ryan A.; Yang, Yanyun; Beitra, Danette; McCaffrey, Stacey – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2015
Estimation of composite reliability within a hierarchical modeling framework has recently become of particular interest given the growing recognition that the underlying assumptions of coefficient alpha are often untenable. Unfortunately, coefficient alpha remains the prominent estimate of reliability when estimating total scores from a scale with…

Harrison, Allyson G.; Holmes, Alana; Silvestri, Robert; Armstrong, Irene T. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2015
Miller et al. have challenged the findings of our two previous studies, based largely on the assumption that our findings are biased due to the clinical sample used. However, they fail to address the primary tenet of our studies, namely, that clinicians will obtain different scores on the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-IV (WAIS-IV) depending on…

Harrison, Allyson G.; Holmes, Alana; Silvestri, Robert; Armstrong, Irene T. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2015
Building on a recent work of Harrison, Armstrong, Harrison, Iverson and Lange which suggested that Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) scores might systematically overestimate the severity of intellectual impairments if Canadian norms are used, the present study examined differences between Canadian and American derived…

Miller, Jessie L.; Weiss, Lawrence G.; Beal, A. Lynne; Saklofske, Donald H.; Zhu, Jianjun; Holdnack, James A. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2015
It is well established that Canadians produce higher raw scores than their U.S. counterparts on intellectual assessments. As a result of these differences in ability along with smaller variability in the population's intellectual performance, Canadian normative data will yield lower standard scores for most raw score points compared to U.S. norms.…

Roivainen, Eka – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2014
Research on secular trends in mean intelligence test scores shows smaller gains in vocabulary skills than in nonverbal reasoning. One possible explanation is that vocabulary test items become outdated faster compared to nonverbal tasks. The history of the usage frequency of the words on five popular vocabulary tests, the GSS Wordsum, Wechsler…

Miller, Delyana I.; Davidson, Patrick S. R.; Schindler, Dwayne; Messier, Claude – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2013
New editions of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence and Memory scales are now available. Yet, given the significant changes in these new releases and the skepticism that has met them, independent evidence on their psychometric properties is much needed but currently lacking. We administered the WAIS-IV and the Older Adult version of the WMS-IV to 145…
